Trump slams Biden and Dems after Manhattan grand jury voted to INDICT him over $130,000 hush money
Donald Trump reacted with fury on Thursday as news broke that a Manhattan jury had voted to indict him over $130,000 in hush money paid to porn star Stormy Daniels.
He said Democrats would regret ever persecuting an innocent man when his supporters dump them out of office.
‘The Democrats have lied, cheated and stolen in their obsession with trying to “Get Trump,” but now they’ve done the unthinkable – indicting a completely innocent person in an act of blatant election Interference,’ Trump said in an emailed statement.
‘Never before in our nation’s history has this been done.’
The indictment marks the end of a years-long investigation into cash paid to the adult movie star in 2016, allegedly to buy her silence about their affair.
And it takes the country into uncharted political and legal territory, with a candidate for the White House facing the humiliation of arrest.
Trump played nine holes of golf at his Florida club as usual on Thursday morning. But the 76-year-old and his aides were taken by surprise when they learned of the indictment later at his Mar-a-Lago home, The New York Times reported.
They huddled to work on strategy and draft a defiant statement that will form the basis of fundraising email shots.
